Estadio León – stadium description

Few stadiums worldwide boast that many large events – Olympics and two World Cups. That’s quite something especially that currently the venue is not even 35,000 in capacity.

The football-specific stadium was built within 1.5 year in 1967, being among Olympic venues just a year later. In 1970 it already had FIFA World Cup in its portfolio, adding another one in 1986.

Single-tiered stands are of varying height, with northern terrace being dominant, where Club León most vibrant fans stand. Lower stands alongside the pitch are covered, also providing balconies with most expensive seats under the roof.

Interestingly, following the suite of Barcelona’s largest venue, this stadium has been nicknamed Camp Nou, despite the phrase being in Catalan, not Spanish.
